Semogue shaving brushes from Portugal have earned a loyal following among wet shavers around the world.  All Semogues are handmade with high standards of craftsmanship and handle designs that set them apart from brushes produced in other parts of the world.  Over the past few years, Semogue has offered several Owners Club model brushes that feature the finest materials and finest workmanship the brand has to offer.  I was excited to see how Semogue’s new two-band badger brush stacked up against other two-band brushes that are filled with this sought-after grade of hair.

Most of the Shavemac brushes I have seen in the past featured the distinctive European bulb-shaped bristle loft. While many wetshavers like this shape because of its compact nature, I personally prefer fan-shaped brushes because I enjoy the feeling they provide on my face during my shaves.  While exchanging e-mails with Bernd Blos at Shavemac, I learned that the company also produces fan-shaped brushes and I was immediately interested in giving one a try.  This article takes a closer look at the Shavemac Series 167 D01 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.

With around 20 shaving brushes in my collection, I don't often become excited about using or obtaining brushes anymore. This was, of course, until I happened to come across a stunning specimen of a shaving brush offered by Rooney.  The Heritage “Stubby” XL series has been released under a Limited Edition run with three different sizes: 1XL, 2XL, and 3XL. Both the 1XL and 2XL have found their way into my rotation, and the 3XL may follow soon. The 2XL is like no other brush I have owned and its performance is definitely second to none.
